A girl who is drawn to the supernatural or is it a legacy that follows her? Aisha is a no-nonsense scriptwriter who works hard at denying the netherworld yet it is what helps her outsmart a killer. This is the first thriller cum mystery I have read by Varsha Dixit and I am floored once again. I have previously read and enjoyed her books and this one, Killer Moves is a must-read book.
I loved the Only Wheat Not White and The Wallflowers but this one is very different from those feel good romance novels. While Only Wheat Not White was a family drama with a love story, The Wallflowers was a prequel to the contemporary romance book A Hasty Hookup.
Killer Moves is a thriller with a killer on the prowl, not just a regular murderer but a serial killer. Aisha has a secret that brings her right in the sight of the killer. She is just following her niece, Kiara to her photo shoot in Goa to keep an eye on her. The boss, Kabir has been accused of the murder of his wife and Aisha is worried about her niece. The killer is on the prowl around the models plus Aisha finds it increasingly difficult to ignore the real reasons she wants to be around. Interest in Kabir and secrets from her niece. The killer, his victims, Goa and the gruesome killings ensure that Kabir, the police officer and Aisha can’t trust anyone and even the most trusted ones cheat on them. Who is the killer is quite a twist and the ending more so with a conflict I did not see coming at all.
Varsha has delved into the occult and the super-natural and not just killers in this book. The story is fast-paced, kept me turning the pages and made a fan of Varsha’s writing yet again. She has blended the mystery with the lives of the girls as well as a hint of romance beautifully.
Killer Moves is more of a thriller than a romance. It has elements of a budding romance that adds fine layers to the story. Aisha and Kabir both have their own demons to fight and yet are drawn to each other. They find a balance with each other even though they are as different as can be. The author has given hints of a sequel even though this is a stand alone book and I eagerly look forward to the next book in this series.
